Here is a simple way to add a photo album to your Kobo eReader. To save memory, size photos to 312 pixels wide x 255 pixels high (or smaller) at 72 dpi and save as .jpg. There is no need to change the pics to black and white. Next open MS Word and size a page to 3.5 in wide X 4.3 in high (or 90 mm x 110 mm) and the insert photos. Once completed, save as a .PDF and then load onto KOBO. I saved the PDF file on an SD memory card and loaded the card into the Kobo card slot (top left of the eReader). Feel free to download a sample PDF photo album I created using the above method. Download to your desktop and then transfer to KOBO. It will show up as a document. The pics are of Winchester, a Norwegian Forest Cat .
